ANIMATED: Cam Newton Giveth, He Taketh Away

As if compelled to find the equalibrium between touchdowns and interceptions, Cam Newton gave one back in rather glorious fashion. After deftly avoiding a sack, the rookie quarterback attempted an underhanded toss that was predictably picked off. That was his 15th interception of the season, equaling his touchdown total.

Just for good measure, Newton also threw an interception on his next possession. This is all bad news for the Panthers, who looked to be on their way to an impressive victory.

Just to make matters worse, the Atlanta Falcons came right back and scored to pull within 23-16. The touchdown was scored on a beautiful pass to Jacquizz Rodgers from Matt Ryan. The touchdown came on the second play of the drive with Ryan rolling out to his right and then throwing deep across his body in what appeared to be a designed play to get Rodgers isolated on a linebacker.
